Do you still have to have a criminal record to be in B Coy ?
Yes. It is perfectly possible to change locations and company.Hello everyone, hoping someone can give me some advice. I am interested in joining 4 para I’m currently working near rugby but Am from the South Wales area. Would it be possible To join D company in rugby and then tranfer to Newport if I was to go home to work? Thanks
what is The process before starting the recruit cadre? I understand from what I have found here that there is 2 a year, I would be hoping to get on the next one in June. would this be possible or does it normally take longer?
Thankyou, I’ve applied this morning, hopefully all goes wellHow long it takes is very much down to how you fare through the recruiting system. Start now and you should be on the June Cadre - assuming no hiccups on the medical entry standards.
with Newport coming onto strength this has added an extra dimension as Rugby/Notts are very close, and some attend both locations due to the differing training days.
